We investigate the distribution of Stokes pulse energies in the transient nonlinear regime of stimulated Raman scattering. Nonlinear effects lead to a stabilization of Stokes pulse energies. The character of the transition from the chaotic linear regime to the nonlinear regime is studied in detail. The results compare nicely with recent experiments of Walmsey and Raymer.
